Hungry Girl Night 4: Buffalo Chicken Wing Macaroni and Cheese

Check out the rest of the Hungry Girl recipes here.

This recipe had Adam's name written all over it. He was super excited when I told him what I was cooking for dinner.
 Sorry I don't have a better picture. It came out of the over just before Adam got home from work (2 1/2 hrs late!) and we were so hungry we ate right away. The recipe serves 4, so we had dinner and there's two portions for his lunches this week.

  •  4.5 oz uncooked macaroni (I used whole wheat shells)
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 8oz cooked, shredded skinless chicken breast (I baked mine at 350 for 1 hour)
  • 1tsp chopped garlic
  • 1/4c franks red hot sauce (I didn't have Frank's and used Texas Pete- way too spicy!!!)
  • 1/2c fat free sour cream
  • 2 wedges laughing cow light swiss (I personally would have taken the extra 20 calories per person and added 2 more wedges to make it really creamy, cheesy)
  • 2tsp yellow mustard
  • 1.5 Tbs shredded parmesan 
  • 1Tbs chopped fresh parsley
  •  preheat oven to 350, cook pasta to al dente, drain and set aside
  • cook celery, carrots, and onion on medium high heat until softened; add chicken,garlic, and 3Tbs hot sauce; mix and set aside
  • in microwave safe bowl, mix sour cream, cheese wedges, mustard, and 1Tbs hot sauce. Heat for 30 seconds
  • in an 8x8 baking pan, spray with nonstick spray, place 1/2 pasta on bottom, layer with chicken mixture,  layer remaining pasta, top with sour cream mixture, parmesan and parsley
  • Bake until hot and bubbly- about 30 minutes
